There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

Ban Gun Laws not Guns

Back in January 2009, I posted a video about gun laws in great Britain. I was thinking how backwards society in general has become, believing the propaganda of pacifists and the privately-owned majority media that guns kill people and the less guns in the world, the safer the world will be.

This is all based on lies. Every dictator, every totalitarian government have taken weapons from its citizens and then proceeded to murder them. When a government wants to quell any descent from the civilian population, the weapons are confiscated first. Without any defense, they will comply with anything the government wishes or they will be eliminated. Bullets are cheaper than cells or internment camps.

There are many articles regarding the UN Arms Trade Treaty both supporting and condemning it. Some claim that it is merely an international registry and  that it would provide benefit to have a registration for a weapon in case it may be used in the commission of a crime.

Many Americans feel that it is an invasion of privacy and a blatant invasion of their rights as explicitly stated in the Constitution. I tend to side with the latter.

The right to bear arms and to form militias within the communities was the civil law enforcement the founders envisioned. This provides for the various needs of the people considering their location and environment. Obviously law enforcement boats would not be required in the Rockies, nor would snowmobiles be relevant in the coastal areas. The calling up of the militias in times of declared war was another issue that did in no war restrict the citizens from having personal weapons. There purposefully were no restrictions placed on weapons as the needs of the individual is of greatest concern for safety.

I felt it was necessary to bring this blog post forward and update it, with the motivation of stimulating debate and discussion on the issue by readers.
